Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center

In the Tradition of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Lion’s Roar programs are designed to provide personally tailored teachings for the Western student within an international community. Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. Whether you are interested in simple calm-abiding meditation or more advanced Buddhist teachings there is a class just for you. It’s okay to just drop in. No need to be a member or a Buddhist to participate. Come as you are and show up!

Save the date: Buddha’s Birthday Celebration, Friday, June 9, 2017

Lion’s Roar Dharma Center will celebrate the most special occasion of Saka Dawa – the time of Buddha Shakyamuni’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana – on the full moon evening of Friday, June 9, 2017, starting at 6 pm. The evening will begin with prayers, a dharma talk and the precious ceremony of bathing the baby Buddha. Sangha and friends and family are invited to continue the festivities with a potluck dinner (with birthday cake of course) and dancing for the whole family in the dojo. There will be a DJ spinning the tunes of classic rock, disco, current hits – something for everybody.
